Cave trip

Here are a few things that have been happening:
  • C paid for $4 of ball bearings, to be used in building a toy car.
  • Yesterday after lunch, my husband took the kids on a big trip to some local caves. Because of the limestone so prevalent in the area, we have an excellent supply of caves. The one my husband and the kids visited was discovered during the construction of a stretch of I-35. They spent over an hour underground and my husband spotted a bat. Left at home, I took a nice long nap and walked 4 miles uphill on the treadmill while listening to Mansfield Park.
  • C has finished On the Banks of Plum Creek.
  • C just came home from her first day of a week-long gifted camp that focuses on life on the space station.
  • There's a new listing for a house near an Episcopal church on the edge of the historic neighborhood I watch. The house is 2000 sq. ft. and is listed at $175k. High 100s is starting to look like the going rate for moderate-sized homes in this neighborhood.
